Welcome to another week of fantasy football where everything’s made up, but the points actually matter. Matchups are the name of the game this week, as I’m sure just about everyone is scouring the waiver wire with so much talent on bye. That’d be said, look no further than the Packers who square off against an embarrassing Colts defense. Rodgers is going to toss touchdowns galore in this one, so be ready for quite a few Lambo Leaps. I’m not sure the Colts’ strategy of letting the opposing offenses score as quickly as possible so Andrew Luck can have the ball back is logical, but hey, I’m no defensive coordinator. If it’s too late to snatch up Packers, don’t worry, there’s plenty more juicy matchups to exploit on the docket. And as a bonus because I’m such a good guy, I also have a few secret stashes for those looking to deepen their benches. Let’s get to it!

Here, let me help you up. Haha, just kidding. See ya!

The Seattle Seahawks selected wide receiver Paul Richardson in the second-round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Shortly thereafter, fantasy football owners worldwide collectively rolled their eyes with disinterest. After all, ever since the retirement of Hall of Famer Steve Largent, Seattle has been largely known as a place where quality wide receivers dramatically fade into fantasy obscurity. It’s an unfortunate fact, but an important one that has been particularly evident since the beginning of the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era in 2010. Yet, with Pro-Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson entering his third year as a starter in the NFL (and coming off of a dominant 43-8 Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos), it’s entirely possible that Seahawks Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell could be persuaded to open up the passing game in 2014. That would mean the wide receiver position might once again become a valuable commodity in the Pacific Northwest. Of course, nobody is going to fool themselves into believing the Seahawks will turn from the run-first mentality that has served them so well, but it’s still fantastic news for Seattle’s receiving core.
